    GI website shows this shipping "regionally" in April. Has anybody heard which states in the region will be getting this? Never got to try King Henry, so I am really hoping this comes to more Midwest states.

    I tweeted @GooseIsland as asked if they had a shipping date and also asked what size these would be? They responded with, "Not date yet. Will be sold in 4pks."

    I'm guessing these will be around the $20-25 price point, like BCBS 4pks then?

    One thing you'll learn about GI is that there is no set date when they release their BA offerings (including sours). It will hit distribution "when its ready".

    I can't wait for this to hit the shelves at the four firkins. I will definitely be getting my hands on some of this

    As Iowa got King Henry (Nebraska as well) I am sure we will both see these 4-packs. On a sidenote, do you ever make it to Omaha, BottleCaps80? I have a King Henry I'd be willing to share with someone that missed out :)

    edit: I see you are 10 minutes from El Bait Shop, well I make it out to Des Moines sometimes, so I will message you next time I am doing that, if you don't come out this way first.
